About the Organization:
Founded in 1998, Sudan Relief Fund (SRF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing both immediate necessities and long-term hope to the people of South Sudan. Over the past two decades as many as two million people have died, four million people have been displaced from their homes, and an additional five million continue to lack basic survival necessities: food, water, and shelter. SRF’s mission is to provide peace and hope for the future by alleviating immediate humanitarian concerns and aiding in the development of infrastructure necessary for growth and stability in the world’s youngest nation.
SRF believes in the future of South Sudan and the capability of achieving lasting change toward the promise of a more prosperous and peaceful future. All of its programs—digging wells, providing meals, starting and growing schools and universities, building and sustaining full-fledged hospitals—are ultimately driven by that vision.
SRF has made significant progress developing and strengthening the South Sudanese community. To learn more, visit SRF’s website at www.sdnrlf.com.
